Sam McKenna

Sam McKenna is a young British singer-songwriter and musician. Born in East London, her music is principally acoustic and composed using a simple, stripped-back style. Her songwriting is vibrant and colourful with an intimacy in her lyrics that is both distinctive and memorable. In recent years she has studied at ACM and Metropolis developing her self-penned songs into a powerful set and an EP of original music is due for release before the end of 2015.

As a singer-songwriter turned producer she has experimented in many genres – influences as diverse as Tracy Chapman, the Beatles and Ed Sheeran have impacted her ‘sound’. She takes inspiration from all around – her friends, family and life as it surrounds her everyday. Her songwriting, although very personal, is also well grounded and accessible to her listeners. The songs are about life, love, truth and struggle – listeners connect, see, feel and relate their own experiences and emotions through Sam McKenna’s lyrics and music.

Anya Lou

In her early teens Anya started collaborating with a wide range of songwriters, producers and DJs in her native country, Switzerland. For several years she has been experimenting with different genres and styles, allowing her to broaden her knowledge and establish her undeniable passion for pop music.

In 2015 Anya moved to London after she was accepted to the songwriting / artist development course at Metropolis Studios. During her time there she has developed not only her songwriting skills, but also her industry knowledge and her live performance. Anya’s songs are self-composed pieces of raw emotion in a contemporary style and an organic edge. Her unique mix of catchy pop melodies combined with her sincere lyrics and honest, powerful vocal delivery come together to create an artist who will touch your heart and stick in your head. Her tracks are currently in the process of production and will be available online very soon.

Cellars

CELLARS are a troubling prospect for their dormant Southgate home. Formed by brothers Gabriel and Dan Levy, the band disturbs the deathly quiet of their North London surroundings through their brooding and otherworldly sound. They released their first demo ‘Night Until Noon’, a hazy mix of crooning vocals and eerie, bewitching guitar lines to praise from the likes of Little Indie Blogs, who hinted at the band’s creative scope, saying “judging by this one demo they could veer into dreampop or go right off the scale into a full rock out”.

CELLARS cite everything from Pink Floyd to Queens Of The Stone Age as influences, funnelled through the fantasy world of Paul Stewart’s children’s novels and Dali’s surrealism. It’s a suburban wormhole.
